The other night was a blast. I was with Agatha, along with her friends at work having dinner at Tippenyaki Restaurant in Castlewoods, Rathmines, Dublin. It is a Japanese restaurant with Japanese-looking Filipino crew. It felt home there, to be honest.
We had a blast weekend! Agatha and I had our very first tour of Ireland (outside of Dublin). We booked it online with Healy Tours for only €90 each. That price is cheap considering it covered a two-day trip and an overnight accommodation.
From our traipsing, I got around 700 pictures. I know that’s a lot but that includes photos of garbage bins, blurred captures, and everything else that I still need to sort. So for now, here’s a peep of the fun we had in Galway and County Clare.
A bank holiday plus a shining warm sun– the perfect formula to carry out our plan to visit the nearest beach and see a castle.
I woke up at around 4 am to get ready for the running session. After over a number of times Michael and I planned to jog, we have finally make it happen this time.
It’s my 25th birthday!! Another year older, hoping to be a much more wiser person to deal with life ahead.
So what was my first day of my 25th year living on earth was like?
I was off-duty but i had to go to HD unit for some lunch treat with my colleagues. I share the same birthdate with Sir Mic so I didn’t have to pay that much for our treat. (It’s Sir Mic’s 28th year. Sorry i have to spill that out. Teehee.)
Sir Mic and I dropped by Shopwise to buy leche flan, soft drinks, and rice. We also went around Englis and V. Rama Ave for the viands: Kusina ni Nasing’s liempo and Sr. Pedro’s lechon manok. With the help of Sir Pugz, we also had CNT’s lechon baboy. All the while, our folks were preparing something for us.
It was a memorable birthday because I got share it with this bunch of people dear to my heart. Spending moments like this with them is a real treasure. Our start may have been rough but our journey together has polished us to shine together and unite happily.
That we get to eat together after-shift like this. 🙂 Miss you guys!

With all the stresses and pressures we have in life, let us all take time to smile. Capturing those moments would even make them more special.
On the 15th day of my vacation, Dadi, Mama and I had the chance to visit again the Monastery of the Holy Eucharist popularly known as Simala Church in Barangay Lindogon, Simala, Sibonga.
It was on a Monday that we went there. We strategically chose to visit that church not on a Sunday or the 13th day of the month so we can avoid the rush of visiting devotees on these days. This is a very good advice to take if you want to experience more the solemnity of the place.
Below are some of the photos I snapped during our visit.
My past few days involved a lot eating out with my friend, Maya. Whenever we have the same duty schedule, we have this identical crazy idea to roam the mall and eat. This is the leisure we need to grab amidst the stressful work we have.
